Robert Blechl GLENDALE -- The Glendale Historical Society emerged in the first half of the century but ground to a halt in 1955 after a waning of historical interest by city residents. The society enjoyed a revival in 1979, however, when a famous house from Glendale's past was threatened by an apartment development. Disassembled and moved from its original plot at 921 E. Wilson Ave, the Doctors' House -- built in 1889 and named for the four doctors who lived and practiced there -- was saved by society members who diligently pieced it back together on a new foundation in Brand Park.

Karen S. Kim GLENDALE -- It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas, thanks, in part, to the bustling Christmas tree lots staked out on numerous Glendale street corners. Most of the seasonal businesses will pack it up until next year come Dec. 24, but until then, shipments of trees will replenish the lots' mighty Evergreen symbols of the holiday season several times a week. "So far, we're holding our own," said Penny Mersola, nursery manager for Virgil's Hardware and Home Center.

Alex Coolman GLENDALE -- Local roads would get nearly $1.5 million in upgrades in a funding package that might be approved at Tuesday's City Council meeting. The money, $1,452,175 to be exact, comes to Glendale from an state-level traffic congestion relief bill and must be spent by June 30, 2002. City staff has proposed using the money to make improvements to seven areas of city roads, primarily for the purpose of repair of pavement. While the work proceeds, the city also proposes to make additional improvements, such as the rehabilitation of wheelchair ramps and sidewalks, that would not be covered by the state funding.
